    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to move around and rank up as you keep working with the TTC. Job security is really high here as the union is very strong.Pay,pension,benefits, sick days. TTC is perfect for a young newly graduated individual who won't mind working the odd shifts. it gets better as years go by with seniority.

    Cons

    People not being able to handle the shift work. General public isn't always filled with people with decency, it's toronto after all and we've seen some of the people downtown who takes the TTC
